Proverbs 20:4 


The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; [therefore] shall he beg in harvest, and [have] nothing.





Ready upon any pretext to abandon his labor, the sluggard neglects the cultivation of his fields when others are at work. Therefore when harvest-time arrives, his fields are bare, and he is found begging of his more fortunate neighbors. The fact is, fortune has nothing to do with it. Their diligence has brought its own reward, and his slothfulness its natural consequence.


Paul diligently and faithfully planted the seed of the gospel wherever he went, and when he died, multitudes had become Christians. He was no sluggard but labored “in season and out of season.


People who claims to be Christians often fill their lives with the more mundane aspects of service while leaving undone those things which are most important such as reaching the lost , teaching their children etc.  These are the people who want to do nothing but need a good excuse to do so.


Memory Verse: James 4:17
